    SAINT-JOACHIM – A pedestrian 48-year-old has been cut short fatally by a car, in the night from Friday to Saturday, at Saint-Joachim, east of Quebec city. In the aftermath of the tragedy that occurred shortly after midnight on route 138, the circumstances remained unclear.

    According to information gathered from witnesses by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), “the pedestrian was the auto-stop and seemed to be a bit too much in the way of traffic,” said Christine Coulombe, spokesperson for the SQ, that has not been able to specify, on Saturday, which left the woman and where she was at the time of the accident that cost him his life.

    A car travelling on the road was struck and she was transported to a hospital where his death was recorded. The driver of the vehicle was also transported to the hospital to treat a nervous shock.

    The identity of the victim was to be released during the day of Saturday. We know, however, that this is a woman of Saint-Joachim.

    Investigators in the collision have been on the spot to make a reconstruction.

    According to the first findings of the SQ, there is no “criminal element”, the place of the accident would be “very dark” and “not enlightened”.
